July 19th, Bead Society Meeting, 7pm

Summer is here and the beading is easy... Jan Falcone did a wonderful job teaching at our last meeting, thank you Jan!

With Jan's instruction and some aid from our helpers, a total of 14 were able to enjoy mastering the beautiful Loop D Loop bracelet. Please bring your creations to the next meeting, I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has done and I'm sure others are also.

Thursday, July 19th, Marge Primavera will be teaching Herringbone Cord. This is an attractive and versatile technique, one with a lot of room for variation. You will learn the technique on a 6-bead Cord in class. After you master the technique, then you can switch over to whatever size, pattern, or bead-number cord pleases you for your personal cord.

Also, since we will be doing a Beaded Cabochon in September, consider that you might want to coordinate your cord with your cabochon for a necklace. Just something to keep in mind when you're picking your bead colors.


Beads (at least 100 beads each of 2 or 3 colors for class sample) If you have even the slightest difficulty seeing or handling small beads, size 8 or even size 6 are STRONGLY recommended for this class. Also, if you like quick results, larger beads will work up much faster.

Needles and thread. Whatever will pass through you beads AT LEAST 3 TIMES. Thread color should match or blend with bead color(s).



Light (if necessary).

Magnifiying glasses (ditto).

Have a safe and happy holiday week and see you in a few weeks!
